Package: xmltex
Version: 1.9-10
Severity: normal


Your package fails to install, when one has teTeX 3.0 from
experimental installed:

dpkg: error processing xmltex (--configure):

Errors were encountered while processing:
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

The cause is your code, which checks if the formats have been
created. It assumes (pdf)TeX to generate a file called
(pdf)xmltex.efmt if the e-TeX engine is used. That was changed in
teTeX 3.0 and there exists only (pdf)xmltex.fmt.

This bug will become RC as soon as teTeX 3.0 hits unstable. The
upload will be done as soon as the RMs allow the next big

sigmentation fault
